Fully digital operating architecture. The operating and display concept in the T-Roc Cabriolet is digital. This applies to the optional driver display Digital Cockpit as it does to the infotainment system with its touchscreen positioned at the centre of the dash panel.
Digital Cockpit. In standard trim, the driver has a view of analogue instruments and a multifunction display. An optional feature here is the Digital Cockpit with a diagonal of 26.0 centimetres and a resolution of 1,280 x 480 pixels. The View button on the multifunction steering wheel enables activation of three basic layouts: In addition to the classic view with circular dials for engine speed and road speed, there are two screens with a digital look. The wide range of additional information shown on the display can be configured via the Discover Media infotainment system; the Digital Cockpit is only available in conjunction with the latter.
Infotainment components. The Composition radio with 16.5-centimetre diagonal comes as standard in the T-Roc Cabriolet. It has two USB ports and a Bluetooth interface. The optional App Connect function puts MirrorLink, Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ on the display, thereby integrating passengers’ smartphones in their native surroundings.
The ultramodern navigation and infotainment centre is called Discover Media and has a 20.3-centimetre display. Its range of functions include a twin tuner, a traffic sign recognition function and a proximity sensor. As an optional extra, Volkswagen can offer the Streaming & Internet package and also We Connect Plus online services for a usage period of three years. These are enabled on both devices for one year as standard.
Phone and sound. The infotainment programme is supplemented with individual options. The Comfort telephone interface connects smartphones to the car antenna and charges them inductively if they have this capability. App Connect is also available in the wireless version (for iOS smartphones). Voice control is online in the We Connect Plus package so the driver is able to benefit from information on the internet when making search requests (“Where is the nearest Italian restaurant?”). The DAB+ digital radio provides top-level radio reception, while the “beats” sound system delivers an output of 400 watts, drawing on a 12-channel amplifier and a subwoofer.
The new MIB 3. The sizeable infotainment component and the Digital Cockpit are powered by hardware that Volkswagen put into serial production a few months ago: the third generation of the Modular Infotainment Toolkit (MIB 3) uses new processors that achieve an extremely high level of processing power. It operates in close coordination with the online connectivity unit, which includes a Wi-Fi hotspot for mobile end devices and an eSIM which puts the car online – at LTE advanced speed. If so desired, the T-Roc Cabriolet is permanently online as soon as the user has completed registration for We Connect services in the Volkswagen system.
Welcome to Volkswagen We. Customers are granted access to Volkswagen We services with the Volkswagen ID. This enables them to tap into a constantly growing ecosystem that includes many online services and functions. We Connect and We Connect Plus services are available for the T-Roc Cabriolet, while the free We Connect app also links smartphones to the vehicle.
The We Connect package can be used for an indefinite period of time and covers vehicle-related services. These include such functions as breakdown calls, accident reports, driving data and current parking position.
The We Connect Plus package is free of charge for the first year and comprises services that make navigation and infotainment even more appealing. Services include online traffic information, online route calculation and online map updates. Internet radio and media streaming guarantee top-level entertainment. The Wi-Fi hotspot (available shortly after market launch) connects passengers' smartphones and tablets.
Additional Volkswagen We services. German T-Roc Cabriolet customers can load the in-car apps We Park and We Experience via the shop in the infotainment system. The We Park app enables parking processes to be initiated directly via the infotainment system in numerous German cities, including mobile extension at any time and cashless in-app payment. We Experience provides customised suggestions for restaurants, shops or service stations along the planned route.
What is more, owners of the T-Roc Cabriolet in Germany can activate the We Deliver service from home and use it during the current test phase.This turns the car into a reception point for deliveries and services. Car wash and dry cleaning are available for the time being, but additional services are in preparation.
A wealth of standard equipment. Volkswagen offers the T-Roc Cabriolet in two equipment lines known as Style and R-Line (for the 1.5 TSI only). Both come with an extensive range of standard equipment. The most important technical features are 17-inch alloy wheels in Mayfield or Kulmbach design, LED daytime running lights and LED tail light clusters, the Front Assist Autonomous Emergency Braking with City Emergency Braking System and pedestrian detection, the Automatic Post-Collision Braking System, the lane keeping system Lane Assist and the Driver Alert System.
In the Style line in particular, the T-Roc Cabriolet features a chic interior. The floor mats have contrasting seams and the steering wheel has a leather rim. In the dark, the background lighting emits white light. As an optional extra, the leather package Vienna is available in the colour variants Palladium and Marrakesh; this is combined with heating for the front seats.
The R-Line. The T-Roc Cabriolet R-Line (for the 1.5 TSI only) also has all these features on board, supplemented by additional equipment. An R-Line logo on the radiator grille, fog lights and cornering lights, dark red tail light clusters and a black grained diffuser insert give it a more distinctive look. The R-Line bumpers are finished in the body colour as are the design strips on the sides.
On the inside, R-Line features stainless steel pedals and sports convenience seats. The latter have seat covers made of fabric, leatherette and ArtVelours as well as an electric lumbar support. Alternatively, leather covers are available with diamond stitching. The R-Line logo appears on the sports steering wheel, start screen and sill panel trim. The progressive steering, sports suspension and driving mode selection enhance driving pleasure, while Park Distance Control makes manoeuvring easier.
Additional extras. Additional optional extras are available for both equipment lines. The wheel range includes 18-inch and 19-inch rims with 215/50 and 225/40 series tyres. Other notable features include the anti-theft alarm, the Air Care Climatronic air conditioning system, the Light Assist main-beam control, the Keyless Access locking system, the auxiliary heater (not for R-Line), the winter package and the tow bar.
